with attitudes such as yours. >> he's an nfl quarterback. >> i actually thought mark was going to make the opposite point because the way they've handled strasburg with the nationals has been a model of caution and it's worked out really well for the nationals. i'm with the anti-shanahan caucus here. i'll also say that even if you take the rg3 thing out, pete carroll outcoached shanahan all game long. beyond even the decision to keep the quarterback in. shanahan made four, five huge mistakes in coaching over the course of the game. i think you have a reason to fire him even if he hadn't screwed up the rg3 thing. >> i would argue going fourth down and 14, that that was a big mistake. >> yeah. >> there were still 4:30 left or something. >> that's more time than is left in this block. >> even if you weren't concerned about the health of rg3, what about the health of your team winning the game? he couldn't use his leg. he couldn't throw the ball. he hit his hand on somebody's helmet. it gives you a better chance to win. >> it's not as if what happened last night on the field is not going t
